"The moment of truth has arrived," Netanyahu said. "At the moment of truth, a man - especially a leader - must ask himself: 'What are you doing, what do you stand for, what are you fighting for?'"
The three girls who had been arrested and detained by the Sharon regime, most prominently 14 year old Chaya Belogorodsky who had been the subject of rallies and outrage on both the left and the right are to be freed. And since nothing in this world occurs without balance, three more have been indefinetly jailed, on administrative detention, without benefit of trial. A tactic typical of tyrannical regimes.
Even as the Sharon regime is raising more roadblocks and dedicating the efforts of soldiers and police to stopping Jews from entering Gush Katif, area roadblocks have gone down that allowed the terrorists to carry out a shooting attack wounding a 10 year old boy. As Al Aqsa, which was and likely is still funded by rhe PA, claims credit for the attack, as terrorist groups announce they are moving into the West Bank and as 55,000 PA troops, most of them former and current terrorists, are prepearing to deploy in proxmity to where disarmed IDF soldiers will be operating, the focus of Sharon's regime and law enforcement and Shaul Mofaz remains the 'threat' of Jewish extremists.
The message is clear as it has always been, Jewish blood is cheap, Arab blood is priceless. As the terrorists advance, the government retreats mumbling absurdities about not retreating under fire, even as they retreat under fire and all the while dedicating all their military genius to planning how to pry a few thousand men, women and children from their homes. And the lies continue to mount.
Of the many lies Sharon spewed to try and defend the expulsion plan, one was that the economy would be somehow hurt by failing to implement it. Netanyahu, has resigned as Finance Minister and the stock market is falling again, even as Sharon's Labor and left wing allies are celebrating. The lies are unraveling, the death toll is mounting and the hour draws near.
A balance of terror, a balance of fates hangs in the balance.
